Consent Examples

To assist UW researchers with designing subject-focused consent, the UW IRB provides example consent forms. Many of these examples are actual UW IRB approved consent forms designed by UW researchers. Some of the examples were created using one of our consent templates. The use of our template is not required and some of the examples deviate significantly from our templates.

We encourages researchers to use the Designing the Consent Process guidance and the examples below to create consent forms and processes that: (1) are written from the perspective of the subject population being enrolled, emphasizing the Key Information that is mostly likely to assist those subjects with deciding whether to enroll; and (2) are designed and presented in a way that facilitates comprehension and understanding.
